I wonder what the white-guy-trying-to-speak-an-asian-language equivalent of Engrish is.

Tagalog is *very* similar to Spanish. The ladies in my office speak it all the time and i've had no troubel picking it up, although i can't speak it.

There's no way someone as pink skinned as you is half Chinese! I'm not buying it. Post up a family pic or something. I'm half Asian, my dad is 100% Idahoan with skin so white he glows and I'm probably about as dark as Siu.
So do you plan on going on a mission?

Just take it... or get a Chinese for Dummies type book and study it over the summer so you'll be ahead of the curve before the class starts.

Good luck!

Tagalog is a lot easier to learn than Chinese. It is one of the few Asian languages that uses the Roman alphabet. It was developed during the Marcos era as a way to unite the various island tribes in the Philippines. Most of them considered themselves from this village and just happened to live in a cluster of islands with others who spoke different dialects. Marcos developed tagalog using Spanish, Ilocano, Pagasinan and various other Philippine languages. For the first time in history, the people of the Philippines were united through a common language. They now considered themselves Philippino first, and they happen to come from this particular island & village.

I speak Tagalog, but I learned since birth.
